Home Educators Around Texoma (H.E.A.T.) exists to provide encouragement, support with resources, fellowship, and group learning activities to all persons or families who desire to home school their children or be involved in home school support. H.E.A.T. also serves to promote communication of vital and legal information among home schooling families.
When we began our home school journey, we were easily overwhelmed by all kinds of advice, curriculum choices, methods, learning styles . . . in fact, the more we read about schooling, the less competent I felt about teaching.
Fortunately, as we began, I heard a speaker explain that parents are qualified and able — even without formal degrees! — to teach their own children. We can teach them because God provides all we need for what He requires. How true!
And yet, we must continually go to Him with our questions and be willing to sit and hear His advice. God is the only expert worthy of our full attention because He created the precious children that we have, and He knows best how they will learn.
It is a simple, yet powerful truth to remember: make time daily to read God's Word and pray. Many times I have been too busy, and have waited until the day unraveled before stopping to ask Him to guide us and make our attitudes right. Recognizing that we are all learners helps us realize who the real Teacher is!

H.E.A.T. Invites all home-school families to join us for a back to school picnic on Tuesday evening August 23 at 7:00 PM at the Lakeside City Park. (It's on Skyline Drive in Lakeside City if you want to Google map it)

Please bring a covered dish to share. H.E.A.T. will provide paper goods and drinks.

You will have the opportunity to register for H.E.A.T. if you want, and all clubs and home-school organizations are encouraged to bring a table and information about their group to let others know who they are.

Seating is limited so bringing chairs or blankets is always a good idea. There is a ball field if anyone wants to bring a kickball and start a game. Mosquito spray is also a good idea.
